Windows 7: Remote Ports - Windows 7

Remote Ports - Windows 7

Trying to disable a couple of remote ports on my Windows 7 Home PC (single PC, connected through router -> cable modem -> PC.

Here's what I got:


49152, msrpc [wininit.exe] (Figured out how to disable)
49154, msrpc [svchost.exe, Schedule] (Figured out how to disable)
49155, msrpc [services.exe] (Figured out how to disable)

Here's how I disabled those:

Port 49152 provides the ability to shut the computer down remotely via the shutdown.exe tool. It can be disabled by writing registry DWord HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableRemoteShutdownRPCInterface=1

Port 49154 allows remote viewing and administration of Scheduled Tasks. It can be disabled by writing registry DWord HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\DisableRpcOverTcp=1

Port 49155 allows remote viewing and administration of Local Services. It can be disabled by writing registry DWord HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\DisableRPCOverTCP=1


49153, msrpc [svchost.exe, Eventlog]
49165, msrpc [lsass.exe]

Nevermind, figured it out. I added:


Now only connections I have are 135 RPCSS & Dnscache 5355.
I don't see any reason to get rid of Dnscache. Not sure about RPCSS though.
